Re: optimist pram

I assembled it with the sides and transoms resting on the bottom panel. So that's probably what caused this, but the discrepancy is more than the 1/4 inch of the panel thickness. Not much of a problem to fix. I'll either trim the sides or add a strip to the transom top edges. It's actually looking p...

Re: optimist pram

I've got some pictures, but I don't know how to attach them on this site. It is definitely not the camber.

Re: optimist pram

Well, I've already pretty much assembled the boat, and I've built it with the transom bottoms resting on the upper surface of the bottom plywood sheet. It looks good and measures out fairly well. (To make the top edge of the transoms align with the top edge of the sides would have created a 1/2" gap...
